LTG Research projects
The project is designing, developing and evaluating a prototype online planner tool to enable teaching staff in all sectors of post-compulsory education to develop their confidence and skills in designing technology-mediated learning experiences. We have based our methodology on the informant design framework proposed by Scaife et al. (1997), which involves the contribution of various representatives of the e-learning community at the specific stages of the project where their contribution would be of the most value. Phase 1 – developing a “proof-of-concept” tool - was completed in February 2007, and work is now going ahead on a more full-featured prototype for testing in teacher-training and staff development contexts in Autumn 2007.
